We have used Ferndale Electronics for over 25 years and can’t recommend them enough. Quality work, to time and at a good price. Jo is always contactable and sorts out any queries quickly to ensure the build is not held up. An excellent service all round.

Qualitetch Components Ltd

We have worked with Ferndale Electronics for many years and have always received a first class service. Jo has always been very flexible to our needs and would recommend highly.

Nicola Taylor, Adder Technology

We have been working with Ferndale for the last 20 years. Most of that work has been regular PCB assembly. But every now and again I like to throw in a curved ball, some tricky rework that I would only trust Ferndale to do properly….and they deliver every time. The quality of the manufacturing, the knowledge, the service level & the communication are all A++! Incredibly flexible, and every piece of work is done to the highest standard….no matter the size or complexity. I would definitely recommend Ferndale to another business.

Simon Denning, Capair Systems
